This personalized Christmas Stocking is sure to become an heirloom that they looking forward to hanging year after year. Why not start a handmade tradition with a new stocking this year?

NB: This pattern includes my Knitted Alphabet Letters, they do not need to be purchased separately.

This is based on an old pattern, but it is not the same:
The sizing has changed and the heel construction is different with new techniques added (with new tutorials to help). Different methods have been used in the finishing to decrease bulk and give a more streamlined look.
This is NOT the same pattern and took a substantial amount of time to re-work, re-knit and re-format. I hope you understand that while pattern support is guaranteed with the new pattern, I WILL NO LONGER BE OFFERING PATTERN SUPPORT FOR THE OLD ONE.
